Rory Kohl

Rory was born on December 18, 1961 to Lyle and Barbara (Miller) Kohl in Hudson, WI. He grew up in Hudson, and attended Hudson High School. In his junior year of school, he enlisted in the United States Air Force, and proudly served for over eight and a half years.

Rory had a love for music, especially playing the piano and being near his mother as she played. He also had a love for drawing and watching sports. In the summer, he enjoyed having annual barbecues with his family and friends while racing remote controlled cars. Above everything, Rory was an amazing father, brother, son, and friend who will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his daughter, Jessica Lynn Kohl (Rodney Jackson) of Santa Maria, CA; sister, Genevieve (Dennis) Chrisman of Parkville, MO; nephews: Zachary, Elliot, and Hunter Chrisman; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents.

A Gathering of Friends and Family will be at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 520 S. 11th St., Hudson, with a military service concluding the evening at 7 p.m. at the funeral home.
